May the Emberton family find comfort in knowing that your dear George now rests, awaiting the day Jesus calls for all in the grave to come out. (John 5:28, 29; 11:11, 43) He will awaken to a world where sickness and death are no more. (Psalm 37:29; Isaiah 33:24; Revelation 21:4) Take care and please accept my sincerest condolences.
